About

89

The 2018 Coelheiros Branco is an 85/15 blend of Arinto and Antão Vaz aged for six months in a 50/50 mixture of stainless steel and used French foudres. It comes in at 13% alcohol. This very precise white is tightly wound and ends with some tension. The Arinto provides beautiful acidic support for this wine and a very fresh, tense feel. The oak impact is nominal, barely there. For a wine with a retail price in Portugal of ten euros, this is quite a bargain. The USA price is fair too. There were 13,000 bottles produced. DRINK 2019-2025

Product Description:

"Made from Arinto planted in Vinha da Sobreira, a variety that is well adapted to our granitic soils. The grapes are harvested manually to preserve its freshness and aromatic intensity. Its captivating acidity makes it a gastronomic and versatile wine, revealing a good aging potential. A typical varietal aroma with citrus and tangerine notes. The palate is elegant." - Winery
